Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a better chance of survival. Wishes also give kids and families who are going through a very challenging time a chance to dream beyond illness and beyond treatment. Imagination becomes real for these children and their families through community contributions and support from volunteers who believe in the power of hope to heal. 

When you grant a child's wish, it is a win-win situation and wishes are all granted by volunteers! There is nothing more fulfilling than volunteering with Make-A-Wish! Beyond granting a child’s true wish, you can use your other strengths to help: whether it's medical outreach, acting as a translator, or recruiting new volunteers, there is no shortage of ways to help fulfill a moment that a child will remember forever.
